Con Couldn’t synch
I couldn’t synch, I couldn’t save into the cloud, couldn’t make an extra journal and ended completely disappointed because I paid and can’t really use it for anything.
Con Images way to small in entry page
The images in an entry don't automatically appear. You have to click a slightly dark button that tells you there are images in your entry. However, the images still appear small. If you double-click, the image appears large but the text gets covered.
Con Feeds are charged individually
You have to pay for each of the feeds that you want to import and you can’t import your photos from the roll with a date like in other more famous journaling apps.
Con Can’t see all the entries within a specific tag
And the service wouldn’t give an answer about this feature.
Con Unreliable and buggy
It's still 'flaky', what you would expect from an app in beta. It sometimes crashes, thus unstable; it also freezes; it does not import, as yet. You are also unable to try before you buy. It has some work to do before becoming a quality app.
